I seem to have become a bit of an amateur Germanist over the past few weeks. I've been thoroughly enjoying Georg Heym'a Poems and Georg Trakl's Poems and Prose (both from the wonderful Libris) and Michael Hofmann's The Faber Book of 20th Century German Poems is never far from reach at the moment. It was this book that reminded me, again, how much I like Bertolt Brecht's verse. So, next to be read is Hanns Otto Münsterer's The Young Brecht (also Libris): Münsterer was among a group of Brecht’s early friends, the appendix here includes versions of Brecht’s verse not to be found elsewhere. Whilst I'm thinking about Brecht (1898-1956), The International Brecht Society looks like a mine of good information (including a useful Brecht in English Translation page).
